Ocean cruise

From the bright lights of the Big Apple to the museums of Portland and the unique cultures and landscapes of Canada’s eastern provinces, this luxurious Oceania cruise is the ideal way to explore North America’s spectacular Atlantic coast. With the indulgences of an onboard spa and a host of gourmet dinning options, there’s much to enjoy as you sail slowly north, calling into ports that showcase the region’s rich wildlife, centuries of European heritage and spellbinding national parks drenched in autumn colour.

Day by day itinerary

Day 1
UK/New York

Your cruise holiday begins in an appropriately luxurious manner with included airport lounge access before your flight to New York. And, once you’ve traversed the Atlantic and transferred to your Manhattan hotel, you’ll have the rest of the day to explore. Perhaps you’ll begin with Central Park before hitting the shops along Fifth Avenue, or head out for dinner followed by a Broadway show. With so much choice, it’s no wonder that the Big Apple is rated among the world’s most exciting cities.

Days 2-3
New York/Newport

With a further full day to explore, you’ll have time to wander New York’s well-beaten path, heading out to explore its eclectic mix of neighbourhoods, visit its world-class museums and galleries or hit the heights with a trip to the top of the Empire State Building. Then, in the evening, you’ll transfer to Oceania’s Insignia to begin your cruise. With luxurious suites and staterooms, teak decks, neo-classical furnishings and a host of luxurious facilities it’s the perfect setting as you sail north to explore Newport’s Gilded Age mansions.
